Recycler or vulture?
My pulse quickens when I see this sign.
The bargain culture
has always been, first and foremost mine.
An honest statement,
not dressed up, feels almost sublime.
Vintage garments
remind me of another time
an escape route
from this time of Trump and crime.

Then at back home
I'm damned to see a pile of dirty rags.
Rose-tinted specs
won't let me magic dross into dream swag.
